SUPER JUNIOR PROFILE

SUPER JUNIOR PROFILE


Super Junior (Korean: 슈퍼주니어) is a 13 member K-pop boyband. The group initially debuted with 12 members on November 6, 2005 with their first single, Twins. The original 12 members, in age order (from oldest to youngest), were LeeTeuk (the leader), HeeChul, HanKyung, n May 23, 2006 SM Entertainment announced the addition of a new member, Cho KyuHyun, being the youngest member. The new 13 membered group released its new look and its newest single U online on May 25, 2006. The title song became a success and enjoyed the #1 spot on music programs for the first time in the group’s caYeSung, KangIn, ShinDong, SungMin, EunHyuk, DongHae, SiWon, RyeoWook, and KiBum.

By the time of the debut, eleven of the members were Korean and one was Chinese. The Chinese member, HanKyung, was picked among from 3000 applicants through auditions held in China by SM Entertainment in 2001. Many of the members had already made a name for themselves prior to Super Junior’s debut through acting, VJ-ing, and modeling. On May 23, 2006 SM Entertainment announced the addition of a new member, Cho KyuHyun, making them the 13 member group they are today.

Before their official debut, Super Junior was already a hot topic over the Internet. News broke about SM Entertainment’s unprecedented plans of forming a large 12 member group. Rumors about the identity of the members as well as the group’s name circulated for months. For awhile, many speculated that they were going to be known as “Common Ground.” Another speculation claimed that the band was going to be called “O.V.E.R” (Obey the Voice for Each Rhythm). Before officially debuting as a group, they had already made appearances on television via acting, VJing on music programs, or modeling. Some of the members still continue to do so today, such as Kim Hee Chul, Choi Si Won and Kim Ki Bum, who are active in dramas and movies.
